Can't remove empty master file

Question

Recently getting back into Skyrim modding with SE. My plan is to use STEP as a base and then add (or subtract) stuff on top of it.

 

After getting the latest STEP guide (0.2.0b) working, I went into SSEEdit and attempted to combine the two STEP patches into a single file. Everything was going great, but I can't remove the "STEP Skyrim SE - CR Patch.esp" file from my new ESP's master list.

 

Everything in that patch file is a duplicate in the my new file. Googling around I came across this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DyxDZT49CfM which showed how to make a dummy master file to facilitate the removal process. Followed the video. Everything good. No errors. 

 

I triumphantly select my ESP and click "Clean Masters"... and the reference is still there.  :confusion:

 

I've been banging my head against the desk trying to figure out how it's even possible. I don't want my file to be dependent on an empty ESP. Anyone have ideas on what to try next?

 

(By the way, I tried removing the master with CK and it was a disaster.)

Ah! I figured it out. But the circumstances are still ... odd.

 

There is a game setting copied over from the original STEP patch file in the Game Settings section called fFastTravelSpeedMult that is overriding the Catherdal Weathers value making it 3.4 instead of 3.6

 

The odd thing is that the value has different addresses for each ESP

 

Catherdal Weathers:  fFastTravelSpeedMult [GMST:11127788]

My patch:                 fFastTravelSpeedMult [GMST:1C00AF64]

 

whereas other game settings overrides have consistent addresses for the variables they affect.

 

The mismatch looked suspicious. Sure enough when I deleted this record from my new patch file I was finally able to run "Clean Masters" and get rid of the reference to the original patch file.

 

YAY!

 

Not sure what was happening there or if it was intentional on the part of the authors? But somehow it hid a hanging reference to a master that didn't need to be there.

They're suppose to be different. The STEP Patch has created the fFastTravelSpeedMult edit from scratch using the CK so it has whatever ID the CK assigned to it.

      I am pretty frustrated with SSEEdit lately.  There is no 64 bit version with the latest download and I cannot get my older version (4.0.3h) to work anymore.  It keeps telling me there was an error and that editing is disabled.  I can't run scripts or anything.  (There IS NO ERROR in the log).  Was something changed?  Every time I try running 4.0.4 I get an out of memory error.  Whats more I can no longer post on Discord to get help.  I have to sign up?
       
      EDIT: More Info: Version 4.0.3h used to work fine without using the 64 bit version until a couple of weeks ago.  The 64 bit version seems to be working ok so I guess I will use that until I get an answer.

      Short version: I have a complete list of cells copied to an .esp, and I don't want to have to go through and flag each one as Deleted individually. Is there a way to do this to all the cells in the .esp?
      Long version: I'm using a replacer for a dead shrub. The replacer makes it a much prettier 3D green shrub, but Bethesda placed the dead shrub in all kinds of caves and mines, so I want to remove it from those cells. Ain't nothing green supposed to be growing in there. So I found the shrub in xEdit, copied every reference over into an .esp and removed the ones that could realistically be home to lush green flora. I'm now left with looooong list of cells each with only a few Placed Objects of these shrubs, but going through them all and changing flags individually is gonna be a nightmare. So I'd much rather see if there is a way for me to do this across every cell I've copied?

      I was trying to create a patch but SSEEdit wouldn't let me.  The plugins were inaccessible. The plugins were grayed out with a line through them.  What's going on?
